Tapping in to IBM Cloud data centers worldwide
Based on the IBM Cloud platform’s global data center presence, performance and customization capabilities, Teridion chose IBM Cloud technology to help create its dynamic network overlay. The Teridion Global Cloud Network (GCN) includes thousands of virtual routers running on hybrid cloud infrastructure in 28 IBM Cloud data centers worldwide. The first-of-a-kind solution works much like an advanced self-driving navigation system, not only determining the optimal route for internet traffic from Point A to Point B but also performing rerouting in real time as needed. “Think of this as a palette or toolbox of data centers,” said Teridion chief marketing officer David Ginsburg. “We can use any or all of them, depending on customer traffic and Internet congestion.”

With the GCN solution running on cloud resources around the globe, Teridion customers worldwide are enjoying faster internet throughput. And by improving performance, the cloud-based networking overlay helps Teridion customers provide a more predictable experience, boosting user satisfaction and supporting delivery to new market segments. “This combination of user satisfaction and predictability is required for wider adoption of new SaaS (software as a service) applications,” says Ginsburg. With usage-based pricing for IBM Cloud resources, Teridion offers a highly competitive price point to GCN users. And with the flexible hosting infrastructure, the business easily scales across multiple locations based on demand.
